Just exactly how is one supposed to be more considerate with a campfire? I have seasonal allergies that hit me pretty hard, but when I go camping I expect people to have campfires. Just like if I would go to a dog park I would expect to see dogs. I just take my allergy meds and deal with it.

By choosing NOT to build one when your fire ring is right up next to your neighbors awning. Or building a BONFIRE instead of a campfire.

Yes, a lot of the blame can be placed on poor campsite layouts by the campground but I simply choose not to have a if the only place I can have it is within a few feet of my neighbor.

Depending on wind direction sometimes the smoke from my own campfire comes in my coach. When that happens I close the windows and door if nec. Pretty simple stuff.

X2- As I was coughing on the smoke from the campfire next door to my rig. I wanted to have my windows and vents open to the sounds of the crashing surf next to me, but my neighbors were choking me out abd I was forced to close everything up. I got my revenge though by turning on my generator for my a/c as they dined close by.

That's Awesome. Off the original topic but I have to comment. If you do not want smoke maybe not booking a site at a campground that permits and provides for campfires would behoove you. Perhaps you should search out places that do not permit fires? They do exist.

If you are at a campsite, and the fire rings are configured so that my ring is too close to your site in your opinion, then go complain to management that you need a different site.

It's not necessarily the wood that makes me cough. I have a wood stove in my home- and no problems . The problem is when other people pour charcoal lighter fluid on their fires and the chemicals /petroleum based, are very irritating.

I find half the enjoyment of RVing is having a wood fire. And if it's <75 degrees out, all the better. I guess fire ring placement gives good credence for having one of the propane campfire appliances
